SE linux problem when security context is modified
 
Hi,

I am using AS4 U3, with SE linux enabled. I have a query regarding
security context.

If there is a file called "A" with security context " root sys
system_u:object_r:bin_t" is modified to default security context "root
sys root:object_r:bin_t ", what will be the effect on this?

File A is "Bourne shell script text executable" file, then whether there
will be any problem to any user, who is using the file?

or there will be any security issues because of this modification?

Please let me know, the behaviour of this scenario.


Thanks and Regards,
Raj

I think that after your change only root will be able to execute the shell script.
